motorcycles with an enclosed cab and three wheels will hold two people

Qianmen Market 前门

South of Zhushikou there is a residential area that includes hutongs and high rises. The gentleman in white is doing a walking exercise, swinging his arms to either side to loosen the shoulders and hips. The small motorcycle based vehicles are primarily used by those with some sort of handicap. They can hold two people and a lot of groceries. There is both a park and a market nearby. The drivers could be in either place.
